LEVITICUS 4-6
DAY 170: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Today’s journey through Leviticus deals with what is to be offered to the Lord.

Ask the Lord for His understanding of Leviticus 4-6. Read Leviticus 4-6. Let’s journey!

Leviticus, the third book of the Jewish Torah and the Christian Old Testament, takes place immediately following Exodus. Despite their miraculous rescue from slavery in Egypt, the Israelites were quick to rebel and turn away from the Lord and worship false gods. The Israelites returned to the Lord, building Him a Tabernacle which He filled with His presence. However, God is Holy, and the unholy (sinners) cannot be in His presence. The book of Leviticus shows how God graciously provides a way for the Israelites to live in His presence.

Leviticus 4-6: Sins against the Lord and fellow man are classified. Sin may be intentional or unintentional. Once an unintentional sin is discovered it requires atonement by giving an offering to the priests, as prescribed by the Lord, to be sacrificed. Theses chapters tell what was to be offered to the priests for atonement for the sin committed. (Leviticus 4:1-6:30)

After reading chapters 4-6, consider the following: What instruction is being provided in today’s reading? How does this instruction help the Israelites in their relationship with the Lord and living in His presence?
